So after upgrading my Adobe Applications to the new 2015 versions my adobe creative cloud storage jumped 3GBs.  I looked and there are around 15,000 files added to my storage (I know because i sync that folder with dropbox and dropbox is going nuts).  Is this expected? Why is this happening?  If this is normal then fine, but if not then what is going on?
